Anwara, 13, left Myanmar with her parents and six siblings. The family was fleeing for their lives—just before they left, someone set the family’s house on fire while they slept, killing her grandparents.
In a refugee camp in Bangladesh, Anwara struggled with trauma and lack of hope. “I was mentally very distressed and upset because I lost my education life, my dreams, and my hopes for the future,” she says. Then she was invited to a center created by Bangladesh Nazarene Mission. There, she could learn and receive trauma-informed care.
“I started again dreaming in my life,” Anwara says.
